Gamification is now commonly used across organisations and teams to achieve success, with studies highlighting that capabilities built from fun are retained longer and can be applied to the workplace. We partnered with Sydney Water Agile project management team to understand how project management simulation is used to achieve business goals.
Gamification encourages collaboration, activates the imagination and memory to help develop better interpersonal and emotional skills which are vital to projects. It also demonstrates the importance of being able to leverage lessons learnt in an agile environment (test, test more, and learn). The experience of simulation allows the team to recollect and reflect upon in the future.
On the surface gamification seems fake, artificial, or like a short cut. It's not.
Gamification provides a platform to monitor progress on a project or team to drive behaviours and then measure the impact. It can be a future game changer for performance and culture for organisations when implemented correctly.
